Champions League - Football: Tuesday preview

Manchester City and Real Madrid will expect to continue their flawless Champions League form on Tuesday, while it's a huge night for Chelsea as they strive to qualify for the knockout stages.

City - 7/4 to win the Cahmpions League - go to Denmark to play FC Copenhagen, Madrid are in Poland to face Shakhtar Donetsk, and even though both clubs have already qualified for the last-16, they are strong odds-on shots to make it four wins out of four.

The real drama on Tuesday night, however, is in Group E. Chelsea travel to AC Milan and Dinamo Zagreb host Salzburg, with just two points separating top from bottom in a section that looks destined to go down to the wire.

Milan mean business after Juve triumph

How Chelsea would love AC Milan to be as toothless at the San Siro as they were last week at Stamford Bridge when these sides clash in a crunch Group E affair.

Graham Potter's men eased to a routine 3-0 win over the Italians, so impressive that they are no bigger than 11/8 for a trip that once upon a time would have been considered one of the most daunting in Europe.

But Milan warmed up for the return leg with a welcome 2-0 win over Juventus, with ex-Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori on the scoresheet - the England star is 20/1 to find the net at any time on Tuesday.

Milan, incidentally, have won only one of their last 11 Champions League tussles with English opposition, with eight of those games ending in defeat.

Both Chelsea and Milan are on four points in the tightest of sections with Salzburg, top on five points, visiting Dinamo Zagreb - bottom on three - at the Maksimir.

A Noah Okafor penalty separated these teams in Austria, the Swiss youngster having scored all three Salzburg goals in the tournament to date.

Okafor is 9/4 to score at anytime in Zagreb, with Salzburg 6/4 to cement their place at the head of affairs with another three points.

Can Celtic cope with crunch clash tension?

OddsCeltic 11/5, Draw 14/5, RB Leipzig 11/10

Group F has turned into a procession for reigning champions Real Madrid, who have already qualified after winning their first three matches and who are 4/11 to make it four out of four by seeing off Shakhtar in Warsaw.

Five days before they take on Barcelona, however, and with a last-16 place already secured, don't be surprised if Carlo Ancelotti doesn't rest a few in Poland.

Celtic can afford no such luxuries as they seek the win against Leipzig that will basically keep them in the competition. Defeat wouldn't necessarily be a total disaster - unless Shakhtar somehow beat Madrid - but Ange Postecoglou isn't daft; Celtic need to land the odds at 11/5.

Their form is shaky, however, at the moment, and they were pretty well beaten last Wednesday in Leipzig, when the Germans turned on the style in the second half, with Andre Silva bagging two in a 3-1 win.

Leipzig are still camped in mid-table in the Bundesliga, though, and weren't impressive in a 1-1 draw at Mainz on Saturday.

Both Leipzig and Celtic have shipped seven apiece so far so goals have to be expected with both playing catch-up. Over 3 goals copped in the first leg and it's 6/4 it happens again in Glasgow.

OddsFC Copenhagen 16/1, Draw 8/1, Man City 1/8

Erling Haaland is already 1/2 to win the Champions League Golden Boot after scoring five in his opening three games.

That puts the Manchester City star one goal clear of Leroy Sane - a 6/1 top-scorer bet - and Haaland would expect to be further clear by the final whistle in Copenhagen on Tuesday.

Haaland only played a half against Copenhagen last Wednesday, more than enough time to grab a double as City raced to a 5-0 win.

Copenhagen and Sevilla have been tailed off in Group G and are locked in their own private battle for a Europa League spot, which means their meeting in Spain in two weeks' time is more important to the Danes than a thankless showdown with City.

Pep Guardiola, with his team having already qualified, may want to draft in a few more youngsters though City & over 3.5 goals at 20/21 would still probably be the pick of the bets.
